There are a few threads here that make me wonder WTF!

One guy wants to know if he should hang out with his friend's new girlfriend.

Another is having an affair with a women who has left her husband to continue cheating with the OP.

Some other guy is potentially going to not have weekend visitation with his daughter because his ex is being controlling and his current wife is as well.

Still another has been pretty happily married for over 30 years but wants to 'sow his wild oats'.

Now none of these men are teenagers, they all appear to be fairly mature adults, but why is the ability to manage their life as a responsible and ethical gentleman so lacking?

We talk about feminisation of men and feminists ruining men's life, but it seems as if men themselves are actually making very bad decisions and ruining their own lives and along with it the lives of the families as well.

Have we lost our sense of doing right?

I'm not doing any of that so the answer to your last question is, "No."

The little head does not understand about consequences and personal responsibility.

That's why it's important for men to think with the big head between their shoulders only. In the situations you describe there are too many decisions being made by the little head.

Exactly what you think.

I do believe you are right.

I know there are many men who do the right thing. Maybe we just had a little influx of hot messes.

I try to look at people on a case-by-case basis. You can find plenty of men who do things that make you think WTF. But I don't assume such men represent all or even a majority of men out there.

Oh no I agree completely. Women do some crazy stuff as well.

In fact all in all you would probably find more threads from women about how crazy their lives are. That's why this little influx of posts from guys seemed so unusual.
